I feel stupid for posting this, I know my troubles aren't such a big deal but I'm a year away from finishing school from the looks of it, and yet, I just want it all to be over and not just that. For it to end and to restart again. I just haven't been the happiest with my undergraduate education. It's a pain in the ass to cross the border every day and deal with asshole customs officers, I feel like I wasted two years of my life and a lot of money in the Core Curriculum, I just can't connect with anybody. That's pretty much it.
I feel like starting again in Mexico but I also feel that if I do that, I would have wasted three, nearly four years for nothing.
My advice, for what it's worth.. finish your study and get out there and into it. Enthusiasm and a little study is all you need. Over-studying is for academics, not practitioners. The questions get answered in the field, the answers come through experience and picking the brains of/observing the people working around you.
I have zero tertiary education. There was one graphic design course in my home town when I left high school, I applied and didn't get in. Made it as a graphic designer anyway, ended up teaching 2nd year Bachelor of Arts at a design school!
Made music videos and small things for TV, got a good contract at Weta, now I'm directing a show that screens all over the world. All those opportunities came about through contacts in the real world, people I had worked with giving me a break later on because they liked working with me, not because of my CV.
Go for it, mate!
